Seoul: After BTS’s comic “Save Me” on webtoon, South Korea’s top portal operator Naver Corp., will now be expanding to create more new and original content by collaborating with K-pop sensation-BTS’s agency, HYBE Co. once again.

According to Yonhap tabloid, Webtoon Entertainment said that they will be creating several locally made webcomics and intellectual property content based on BTS and other K-pop artists under their management company, Hybe Co.

The company also revealed that U.S. comics giant DC Entertainment will partner in the venture. Webtoon was launched in 2004, by Naver Corp., but it expanded globally in 2014. Naver established Wattpad Webtoon Studios by merging Naver Webtoon Studio and Wattpad Studio which is considered the biggest global web novel platform, which Naver acquired in May.
